Phobia
2016

 

In this evocative three-picture series, the narrative unfolds, depicting the nuanced journey of a woman through societal, political, and religious challenges. In the first frame, she sits in a black, floor-length dress, her back turned to the world, symbolizing conformity to traditional norms. The second image portrays her turning, her dress shortened, and her face veiled—a subtle defiance emerging amid constraints. Finally, in the third picture, her half-faced is unveiled and she is holding her dress as if she is serving societal, political, and religious challenges, embodying freedom and independence.

This series intricately captures the struggle women endure, oscillating between conformity and resistance. Each frame serves as a chapter, illustrating the dichotomy of backwardness and the spirit of defiance. It invites viewers to interpret the woman's journey through their own lens, reflecting on the evolving status of women—yesterday, entrenched in tradition; today, challenging societal norms; and tomorrow, embracing freedom and empowerment. Through these images, the series sparks vital conversations about the complexities of women's experiences under different societal paradigms.
